Beth Israel’s religious school and high school programming includes courses and presentations on the history and culture of Israel. But those who have not been to Israel often cannot fully understand the importance of Israel to American Jews and Judaism.

We want our students to breathe Israel, taste Israel, feel Israel, connect to Israel and learn to love Israel by experiencing it upfront and personal.

To this end, our Linda and Shearn Platt Youth to Israel program provides a ten-day travel experience for Beth Israel high school juniors who have demonstrated significant involvement in the congregation and a desire to give back.
